Water is the basic necessity for any living body on this planet. Without which the process of surviving would be a difficult task. And as the population is increasing, so the consumption. All of us must have read articles in newspapers or health magazines regarding the recommended daily intake of water to help our body function smoothly and effectively, doctors say that a human body must consume at least 8 glasses of water a day. But the question here is- if intake of water is so important, then should we not make sure that every sip of water that we gulp down must be pure and harmless?
Water comprises of 5-7% of an adult human body and scientifically, our bodies can afford to lose only 20% of its water content so we need to keep our bodies well hydrated to maintain this water percentage.

This brings up the topic of the use and importance of ALKALINE WATER. Medical studies have proved that alkaline water has the most powerful anti-oxidant properties, better than vitamins A,C,D,beta carotene, selenium which improves our body defense system against diseases.
HOW DO WE PRODUCE ALKALINE WATER?
The three main methods to obtain alkaline water are-
- Using a distiller
- Adding alkaline ingredients to water
- Using a water ionizer
An IONIZER is more than just a water filter, it is a system which changes structure of water into an ionized state. This ionized water in turn is used for several benefits by its users.
The DISTILLER is used to convert normal water into distilled water.
Distilled water is the water which is first turned into steam and then condensed back to water. This process kills al impurities in water and makes the water pH slightly alkaline. This is one of thee best way of getting alkaline water.
- Adding lemon water- lemon water is very alkaline and is great in detoxifying liver and kidney. Also (or lime) water has always helped in distressing ourselves in the times of great fatigue.
- pH drops- these drops add instant alkalinity to water and gives incredible boost to the one drinking it.
- Adding alkaline ingredients to Water
